Shark Pack mount, is it weak?

Hi there, So I received my shark pack, and I'm a little disappointed by the look of it. The base is made of plastic, and seem pretty weak. Quite a contrast to my "dolphin" pack made of sturdy aluminum. I'm looking for real world experience, should I drill holes in my frame and add rivets nuts as sug...

*NEW* In box, iCharger 106B+ (Canada)

Never used.
I thought I would have the guts to go LIPO, it never happened.
All cables and accessories still bagged in plastic.

I'd rather ship in canada. Asking 70$ or best offer, 10$ flat shipping.

Re: My BBS02 e-bike conversion first impression and first se

I have a couple questions for you. Do you feel the need to have brake cutoff sensors with the 750W motor? I've been told you can shortten the motor cutoff setting after you stop pedaling and that many people run without them; less wires too. For me, the ebrakes (cutoff switchs) are worth having as ...

Re: MagicPie 5 vs BBSHD noise

Before buying the bbs02, I hesitated a long time because I cannot stand mechanicals/electronics noises in general, they just annoy me to no end. For exemple, I recently throught out an otherwise perfectly good 22" LCD monitor because of a faint but high pitched whine. Oscillating table fans are anot...

Re: Bafang BBS02 Vendor & Reliability Poll

I bought mine from conhismotor.com. The first one was completely trashed from the get go, and clearly untested. I had to pay an extra 100$ to get another one. It has been working good so far, I have close to 1000 KM on it. I consider this motor very light/medium duty as well and is the perfect commu...

New 9C cassette kit on 10 speed SRAM?

Hello guys, My next project is a Giant Anthem 2 double suspension with an ebikes.ca 9C cassette kit. The triangle seem appropriate for a good battery pack, but it's a shame they are shoving those 10/11 speeds kit down our throats... Now, Grin only sell 7-8-9 cassettes, is it because a 10 speed won't...

Re: Where is good place to buy Bafang BBS-02?

I bought the older version of the BBS02 and a 11,8 AH bottle battery mounted pack in April from conhismotor. They seemed to be the cheapest non-dodgy vendor at the time. I received a motor which sounded like it had a bunch of rusty old nails in it. I spent a lot of time taking it apart, and could ne...

Re: Noob: DIY Torque Sensor Pedal Assist?

Looking at nycewheels, I'm guessing your budget is around 1000$ right? I'm afraid that is a little too low for a real torq sensored setup. A quality thun sensor will set you back 250$, you will then need a cycle analyst to control it(150$). Then you need the motor, a quality direct drive if you want...

Just like slowrider and electrobob on page 1 of this thread, my motor is making a clicking sound while operating normally, unobstructed. It's just like a freewheel sound, but while spinni...

Very good, thank you. Although, I just realized my problem seem to be coming from the final gear assembly. I don't know how, but it seem the final gear assembly shaft is freewheeling almost all the time? Traction is sporadic, and whenever I apply a tiny little bit of pressure on the shaft, the freew...

Thank you for the closure Tronne.
I was indeed following this topic, and I'm glad to know how it ended.
As you said, bmsbattery kit lacks long term usage experience like yours.
It's always interesting to read others evolution.

Re: Want Bafan BBS-02 750w - what to consider from vendor?

You are both correct, and I stand corrected.
As I said, I am very pleased with conhismotor so far, and will report once I have a better ideas of the cells and overall battery.
